I enjoyed the final celebration in the Italian restrant. Many friends turned out to wish me well.
It is very hard to close the book as I am sentimental. Life changes were not meant to be easy.
I packed the car in the blazing heat even at 11pm it was dreadful. I went to my favorite gas station just before midnight. I got out of the car and I ran into Northwind. I haven't seen Northwind for a while and things have not gone well for her. The normally aloof Northwind cried and asked me if I was abandoning her. I showed her my orders as she assumed this was a vacation and it dawned on her I will not be returning.
The conversation did not make me feel too good. Northwind stated her love and it was hard for me to see her like this.
I drove back feeling pretty bad and parked my car. Out of nowhere came Earl the cat. I reached into the glove compartment for a can of sardines and Earl jumped in the car. I fed Earl and we sat for a bit. Then Earl looked at me and jumped out the window and vanished into the night.
This was the first time he has ever jumped out of the car window.
I guess these life moves were never meant to be easy. The look of Earl the Cat stings at my soul
as I depart into my appartment for one last night of sleep and for what promises to be a difficult night of sleep.
A awake at dawn and prepare my last VT post. The air is bearable and the birds are singing . I notice a sight that would ordinarilly elude my perception a V shaped formation of the dreaded Canada Goose honks in the distance heading South. They are two months early.
